    Drama is a terrible thing. I've got enough drama in my love life right now and I'm married. With a husband who is normally rarely home to having home practically all the time, and I just don't know if I like it.

But, I need to be aware that I'm sort of setting myself up to abandon this because of stupid reasons. Making the confession public just to stay accountable and don't intend it as fuel for a flame war. And so I don't use my cynicism as an excuse to quit. I really do want to stay with this...
    I have a lot of sympathy for this. My brain has a way of arguing that the whole premise of what grok would do (and what the heck we can actually know about what grok would do) is a bit silly. It's even harder since I don't have any terribly obvious sensitivities to grains. Still, this *feels* like the right way to eat/live to me, especially if I keep it to 80/20 and don't count dairy. (I think I must have descended from early dairy herders.) So, I tell my brain to shut up and roll with it. Often, my brain even listens.

    I have those moments periodically. I think I have a sensitivity to grains. I just get tired of all the looks I get from when I go out to eat and order things a certain way. Its almost like being picked on as a kid. This is when those moments hit me.

    I'm not into the whole "grok" thing either. I just know that whatever we're doing here works! And if you want to call it a 'diet' and not a 'lifestyle' that's totally ok by me

    I got the email from Mark.

    I'm back in. Not that I've been doing that badly.... But a tune up is a good thing.

    I stopped posting mostly because I was "suffering" from an excess of happiness. Ha. How often is that an excuse? But I've thought about the people I "met" here and wondered how all of you are doing.

    So how is everyone? I see someone got a tattoo!!!
